The Effectiveness of Fracking Disclosure Regimes in Canada

Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s Imaging Canada’s Future Initiative

Today, at the Imagining Canada’s Future Forum, we presented a summary of our research project: From availability to accessibility: effectively using information disclosure to govern energy production. The invitation-only event was held at the University of Calgary and featured presentations from 21 researchers funded in November 2015 through Knowledge Synthesis Grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada as part of its Imaging Canada’s Future initiative.

The complete results of our research were published as “The Effectiveness of Fracking Disclosure Regimes in Canada.” Members of the research team included: Dror Etzion (Principal Investigator from McGill University); Miron Avidan, Kelsey Franks, and Samuel Ruderman (student research assistants from McGill University); and Joel Gehman (Co-Investigator from the University of Alberta).
